Hi guys, I have started a new thread to discuss Approved Food.

Please keep it friendly and discuss any offers and bargains you find.

What do you like, what disasters have you had?

Please discuss good and bad, but keep it in context.

    I love the Los Toros beef and bean soup. We got it at Aldi and it was obviously on special because it was in the centre not with the other soup. Don't have an Aldi near us, so couldn't pop back for extra. Then on my first visit to AF site after reading about it on here, found that they had it. Bought loads and have just ordered another 30odd cans. Building up a stock for winter.

    i love approved food and have never had any problems with delivery before today.they seem to be using the courier "HOME" now.last time i ordered it was still 1hour delivery slots (which was fab!) but this was 3 hours, between 12 and 3pm apparantly.

    it wasn't even very convenient but i waited in all afternoon and nothing turned up :(.i had to leave at 4pm and arrived home to the dreaded missed delivery card.now i have to reschedule delivery but as i'm going away tomorrow (admittedly this was unexpected when i placed my order over the weekend) i'm not quite sure how it's going to work.

    it's such a shame because it's a cracking site and i've got many a bargain but lately so many people seem to be having delivery issues.

    maybe because of the time of the year, the delivery people have people off on holidays etc, so are short staffed i know it isnt an excuse, but its strange how its happening more, now its the summer holidays

    I bought a lot of stuff from them earlier in the year, 3 separate orders , on one of the orders, the delivery man told me that one of the boxes that had orange juice in it burst and it had been sent back, he moaned to me about the mess it had made of his van. I contacted them several times, was promised a refund from ANDREA several times, that never came. Seemingly the box was never returned to them, so what happened to it? there was a lot more than orange juice in it, things I had paid full price for, that couldn't have been damaged. A nice lucky for the delivery man or firm? Maybe, but I certainly didn't get it.
    I also paid extra for delivery, it wasn't a huge amount I lost £25-£30.

    I would not recommend them.

    Just saw the post about the loo roll, that was one of the things I did get. Farmfoods sell the exact same one 9 rolls for £2, its not that good. Bog standard LOL.
    Their kitchen towels are small and not worth the money. Farmfoods however have really good ones for £1 for two.
